School of Media, Communication and Sociology

We are committed to tackling ‘real world’ problems in the pursuit of equality, diversity and social justice.

We draw together Media and Communication and Sociology, generating new knowledge across disciplinary boundaries, and embracing areas that span the humanities and social sciences. We drive excellence through our theoretically-informed empirical research and cutting-edge teaching which is enhanced by our unique interdisciplinary position.

We are part of the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities.

There’s still time to apply for our postgraduate programmes starting in January, view our courses and book your place on a Postgraduate Open Day to speak to staff and current students.


The University’s research is ranked 30 in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework 2021, according to analysis by Times Higher Education.
